Rhode Island Athletics and the Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) have teamed up to help create memorable experiences to both active and non-active military personnel and their families by sending them to a Rhode Island Men’s or Women’s basketball game.  


As an additional benefit, individual ticket holders and businesses can receive tax deductions for their donations. All tax deduction letters are handled through the Veteran Tickets Foundation.


Rhode Island fans can participate in this program in the following ways:


Which Tickets Can I Donate?

Fans can donate tickets to the Veteran Tickets Foundation for ANY ticketed Rhode Island Men’s or Women’s Basketball games. Tickets can be donated once they have been received (either physically or electronically).


Donate Your Existing Tickets

Rhode Island ticket holders can donate their existing tickets by logging in to your Ram Account and selecting "Donate My Tickets to Veteran Tickets Foundation." Choose which tickets you want to donate and Vet Tix will handle the rest!


2015-16 basketball season tickets will be added to accounts the week of October 30.
